The army officer says his main goal in the new position is to seek the consolidation of NATO guarantees for Lithuania.

According to Petrauskas, Lithuania wants NATO to be able to swiftly identify threats and make decisions in a timely manner. In the EU format, Lithuania should seek strengthening infrastructure to facilitate the movement of military forces, he said.

Petrauskas has served in the Lithuanian army for 26 years. He is set to be promoted to brigadier general later this month.
